Bret Michaels may be “a little flaky,” according to Donald Trump, but the man does have some business flair. The rocker’s newest venture incorporates the feel of rock and roll into a line of PetSmart products perfect for any pup or pet that has a wild edge.

The Poison singer’s line consists of 50 products that are specifically designed “to rock your pet world.” It has everything from a studded plush bed to squeaky plush toys sporting similar bandannas to the ones the Michaels is known for. Other items in the collection include cross-and-skull pleather vests, a chewable tour bus, and a few stuffed animals for pets to play with including Rocco the Road Dog and Punk Skunk.

Michaels opened up about starting his pet accessory line and embracing his creative side on TODAY.com. He said, “They all have the Bret Michaels signature touch. Even the cat products have got a rocker vibe. But all of it is useable, fun.” Michaels also stated, “What I live for is to be creative in general… and PetSmart just really got my ideas.”

There is something for any size pet in the Bret Michaels Pets Rock Collection. The one thing the rocker was disappointed about though was not being able to offer up his creativity for his favorite creature– the rat. He said, “I’m going public: the way we have made rats look in movies is a complete lie. Rats are the cleanest, friendliest, easiest animals I’ve ever experienced. It’s like the wolves –they’ve got a bad rap.”

Maybe now that the rocker has gone public with his support of rats, rodent fashion won’t be too far behind.

The Bret Michaels Pets Rock Collection will be available at PetSmart stores and at PetSmart.com beginning June 18. Although some items, like the rockin’ pink tutu in the collection, won’t be available in stores until July.

Read between the vegan headlines

They say bad news travels fast, but I’d race vegan news against it.


The desire to be consistent morally results in an illogical rationalization of this nonsensical belief that it’s okay to eat the animals we claim to love.

Part 2: One of History’s Earliest Ethical Vegan Voices

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.
